Re: Modifications - a good idea or not?

Well, I have eventually got around to getting the extention sorted. I have discovered that the exhaust port is bulging and there is a crack in the block. It is also very corroded and full of rust. Add to that the fact that I broke two head bolts means that this block is free to a good home! So I hav...

Re: Putting up a real fight!!!

I am also restoring an old seagull EFNR564FF9. When I say restoring, I am not going to the detail and precision that you guys do. Hopefully no one will look at what I do and shake their head too much! But I have taken the route of "I need an outboard for my boat, a seagull would suit it". ...

Wanted: Cylinder block for 90 series

It looks like the engine was left full of water and then froze. The exhaust port is cracked and burst. It was running and this only came to light when the exhaust tube was removed.

Engine serial number EFNR 564FF9 90 series.

Thank you.

Re: Modifications - a good idea or not?

Not sure putting it off center will do the job.

Not planning to cut things, but to make new, longer extensions. I can always put the original back together.

It’s more about keeping the bottom end in the water when I am standing midshipmen or up front.

Re: Modifications - a good idea or not?

As you can see the motor is a bit high. The idea is to place the prop behind the lower part of the Y transom so it pulls clear water. If I extend it by 9” it will do the trick. That way the Skeg on the gearbox is just above the keel line. I may need to do something to reduce back pressure. I am plan...

Re: Modifications - a good idea or not?

It is thrust I am after. It is a displacement Hull so speed is not an issue.
Fresh water on Lough Ree in Ireland. The river flow could be up to 4 or 5 knots I suspect.

I will post a pic of it in the down position tomorrow, and you will see why I need it lowered.

Re: Modifications - a good idea or not?

The prop spring is inside the prop.

What I am after is thrust. Is there a better prop or is this the thrustiest?
